Liverpool make transfer decision on in-form Bundesliga attacker

Liverpool are prepared to wait until the end of the season before considering a potential move for Borussia Monchengladbach attacker Thorgan Hazard.

The Belgium international has been with the Bundesliga outfit for the past three-and-a-half seasons and the current campaign has witnessed the best of his abilities with nine goals and six assists in the Bundesliga alone.

Amidst this, there had recently been the speculation that the Reds could trigger the €30m release clause in his contract to lure him in January but that simply does not appear the case.

The Reds have fared impressively in the Premier League this term where they have remained unbeaten to date and this has helped them bridge a four-gap to second-placed Manchester City.

Through this period, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have shone alongside the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge and it appears that Klopp does not want to add further competition for places.

Instead, the focus may shift towards signing a new central defender in the New Year with injuries to Joel Matip and Joe Gomez leaving Klopp with just two senior centre-backs in Virgil van Dijk and Dejan Lovren.

Meanwhile, Thorgan has just 18 months remaining on his existing deal with Monchengladbach but the German club are willing to stick with him for the season in order to enhance their prospects of finishing in the top four.
